Many sportsmen dream of starting to ride a racing bikes: the charm and long history that this vehicle brings with it create a strong attraction and thus the curiosity and desire to try it is born.
It is not the usual bicycle, its characteristics, its technologies and the position that the cyclist must assume make the road bicycle a means for playing sports, for training, for competing and for staying fit.
And as the name itself suggests, it was created to be on the asphalt, for speed and aerodynamics!
Let's dig deeper…
By definition, the racing bicycle was born for competitions. In fact, its shape and technical characteristics make it an ideal bicycle for pedaling on smooth asphalt and for reaching high speeds... precisely for competing and, why not, winning!
Its main characteristics are lightness, thin tyres, the classic handlebar with "curves" and a riding position that is defined as "loaded forward". Now it's clearer what we're talking about?!
First of all, it is good to make an assessment of the type of cyclist:
Another element that affects the choice of racing bike is the budget you have available and intend to spend. In addition to the frame, wheels, groupset and various components greatly influence the final price of the bicycle. If you want to approach the world of road cycling as a "neophyte", the solution could be to evaluate the purchase of a used bike, which allows the cyclist to understand if the purchase made is exactly the one for him/her.
Finally, it is necessary to evaluate the type of use that one intends to make of it, also in relation to the time available to the cyclist for training.
How to choose the right size of racing bike? It may seem trivial but the wrong choice could lead the cyclist to assume an incorrect position and therefore to be uncomfortable and unable to obtain the desired performance.
For each model, the geometry of the frame and a size table are available which, based on the height of the cyclist and the measurement of his crotch height, will return the most suitable size.
There are many brands on the market that produce road bicycles within their product catalogue, some of them really have a very long tradition and history, which has made them famous and known by cyclists from all over the world.
